    Haven’t been out for fun since my car still needs more fuel system stuff but I figured I’d go play the other day

    What was that bullet that shot thru on race #2?

    Was the a Civic turning up the boost each run? Was wondering if it was going to pop. Pounded the snot out of the limiter too!

    Carb’d sbc on a very healthy shot. We did a pull and he got me 4-5 cars

    As far as I know, no, but I wasn’t told the setup. They just said it makes 400 and that was it

    Great vid!

    A well sorted turbo Honda can be a hell of a sleeper from a roll.

    He needed more tire. Little bastard moved out tho.

    It was quicker than I expected for sure. He made sure to only post his view where he pulled a half car and slammed on the brake so I’m glad I had some footage as well.

    yeah... looked like he was only running 3rd and 4th gear then shut it down. Evo's are similar.

    The imports are geared so steep that once they get to 140ish theyre pretty much done.

    He was getting out around 110 or so. Kind of anticlimactic

    I hate the fact that they can be fast!

    SBC swapped fox on some giggle gas. Somebody filmed from behind so it’s not great quality but the car moves out

    I'm not a Civic fan but have to admit they can be beastly. You've got a nice supercharged 5.0 there!

    Thank ya sir, and you got that right. One more piece of the power puzzle and it should be good until I’m ready to build it
